2023: INEC Prohibits Campaign In Worship Places

 Ahead of the 2023 General Elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released its guidelines for the conduct of political activities in a six-page document titled Conduct of Political Rallies, Processions and Campaigns.

The document prohibited the use of abusive language and hate speech as well as campaigns and political rallies in places of worship.

It also stated that no person attending a political rally, procession or campaign should be in possession of any offensive weapon, while state apparatus including the media shall not be employed to the advantage or disadvantage of any political party or candidate at any election.

INEC noted that the objective of political rallies was to project, offer, sensitize and create awareness about the party’s symbol, flag, slogan, and manifesto, mandating political parties to submit a notification of the schedule of their campaigns stating the date, time, venue, agenda and list of members of the organising committee and police approval within the jurisdiction of the campaigns, within a minimum period no later than 10 days to the commencement of their campaigns.
